Loomis Basin Chamber of Commerce Newsletter
January 2018
President's Message:
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I read a wonderful quote the other day - "On New Year's Eve the whole world celebrates the fact that a date changes. Let us celebrate the dates on which we change the world." We have some amazing opportunities in front of us each and every day. What we choose to do with those opportunities is what will make the year good, great, or just alright. I challenge each and every one of you to find something to make this year great - for yourself, for someone else, for your business, or for your community. 

The Chamber has some exciting things coming up for this year - the first of which is happening this month. We will have our 2nd Discover Loomis Business Expo on January 30th. I'm sure you have seen some information about it at this point, so I urge you to participate - either by having a booth or just coming by and meeting everyone. Supporting our local businesses is one way we can make this year great. I look forward to seeing you there. 

My goal is to make 2018 "TWENTY GREAT TEEN" for our businesses, our community, and for ourselves.

Town Of Loomis Announces New Facade Improvement Grant Program


Capitalizing on the momentum created when nationally-recognized downtown revitalization expert Michele Reeves came to Loomis in mid-November, the Loomis Town Council unanimously approved on Tuesday, December 12, a new façade improvement grant program aimed at provided funding for downtown businesses to improve their storefronts. The grant program is available to businesses and property owners in the Loomis Downtown Master Plan area.
